Our CDR album has now been officially released via VEB89 on bandcamp. Based on the pieces composed for our performance aboard the M.S. Stubnitz in Hamburg, the album includes other tracks from the same sessions plus a special bonus track: Autopsia’s stunning remix of DDR60 track Nationalhymne 2009.
The tracks created for the Stubnitz and the wider album explore the dark legacy of the East German navy (Volksmarine) and fishing fleets, which were decimated following German re-unification, with social and political consequences that are still unfolding today. The album presents a ghostly glimpse into the lost world of the Cold War at sea and the lives of those engaged on its frontlines.
